A wonderful signature piece of William Spratling's is made of sterling silver and is set with a large round cabochon Mexican amethyst stone. It is one of Spratling's classic designs. This pin has Spratling marks that would date this piece to being made circa 1944 to 1946.
This pin is in very good vintage condition showing only wear consistent with it's age. The pin back and clasp appear to be original and function properly and the amethyst stone appears to be original as well. This pin is a generous size being approximately 3 3/8 inches at it's longest points and has a nice weighty feel in the hand. The U.S. quarter in is the photo to help with size comparison.
